Late Lee Reilly strike lifts Steeton back top

Steeton reclaimed pole position in the Premier Division of the West Riding County Amateur League thanks to a 2-1 home win over Bradford rivals Campion.

Chris Simpson edged Steeton ahead in the first half and although Campion drew level through Tom Howard with ten minutes left, Lee Reilly struck the winner three minutes later.

Bay Athletic, who have played two games fewer than Steeton, are just a point adrift after thrashing winless bottom side Overthorpe 8-1.

There was a sense of deja vu for Tyersal as they allowed visiting Lepton Highlanders to snatch a 2-2 draw from 2-0 behind early in the second half.

Tyersal had seen Kirkburton pull back to earn a 4-4 draw from a 3-1 deficit in their previous home league game.

This time Andrew Bailey’s double appeared set to earn maximum points, only for Lepton to hit back through Ricardo Ianzito and new signing Andrew Anderson.

Salts also recovered from being 2-0 behind to salvage a 2-2 draw at Marsden thanks to a late equaliser.

Karl Sykes and Jon Newiss netted for Marsden in the first half but Jonny Cunnington reduced the arrears after the interval and Sam Waterhouse then struck in injury time.

Littletown remain second-bottom after losing 6-4 at home to mid-table Golcar United.

Ventus-Yeadon Celtic missed a chance to overtake Division One leaders Wakefield City, who are now four points clear after a 5-2 home win.

Ryan Barker’s hat-trick was backed up by goals from Conor Glavin and Rob Bloomfield, while Antoine Burke and Graham Chandler replied for Celtic.

Huddersfield YMCA boosted their chances of challenging for promotion with a 2-1 victory at home to Lower Hopton.

But Campion Reserves suffered their heaviest-ever home defeat as they were hammered 8-0 by Storthes Hall Reserves, who had failed to win in any of their previous eight games.

Bay Athletic Reserves opened up a three-point advantage at the Division Two summit after winning 5-1 at Hunsworth Reserves.

Steeton Reserves could have stayed level on points with Bay but lost 4-3 at Salts Reserves, with Richard Magson’s hat-trick proving decisive as his side climbed to within two points of their opponents.

West Horton climbed above Steeton into second place on goal difference after a 3-2 home win over Littletown Reserves, with Faisal Ali, Kamran Khan and Ebad Rashid on target.

Dudley Hill Rangers extended their unbeaten run in all competitions to five games with a 4-1 victory at Ovenden West Riding Reserves.
